Call For Papers

We welcome any related topics in the following two categories of domains or applications:
  • Recommendation of financial products and/or services, such as loans, insurance plans, pension plans, real estate, funds and stocks, investment, micro-finance, etc. This includes related aspects, such as explanations, ethical aspects, multi-stakeholder fairness, and awareness and sustainability.
  • Broadly speaking, we also welcome submissions related to more general industry perspectives (not limited to the financial industries), such as the joint optimizations between recommendation relevance and the profits, business strategies, the balance between costs and gains, the view from different stakeholders in the industries. For example, the topic of joint optimization between profits and relevance in any domains (e.g., movies, music, etc) would also be relevant for our workshop.
